Who named these cookies?

Jingle Jumbles. It's a horrible name. I guess they were going for a Christmas-y vibe because they're spice cookies, and then bells....that jingle. Uh, I'm going to rename them Raisin Spice cookies. Makes more sense to me.
Anyway, these are basically the same as my ginger sparklers, but they actually bake right and they aren't greasy. The raisins make them super delicious!

Raisin Spice Cookies (From The Cookie Bible)
2 1/4 cups flour
2 teas. baking soda
1 teas. ground ginger
1 teas. ground cinnamon
1/2 teas. ground cloves
1/2 teas. salt
3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks), softened
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
1 1/4 cups raisins
granulated sugar

Sift together the flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and salt.
Cream butter and brown sugar. Beat in molasses and egg until fluffy. Mix in dry ingredients, then add the raisins. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375F. Roll 1" balls, and roll in granulated sugar. Place on cookie sheets and bake 10-14 minutes or until edges are firm and centers are slightly soft. Cool on wire racks.
Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

*The original recipe says bake 12-14 minutes, but mine were done at 10. Which is why it is so important to always set the time to the minimum!
